. the cuts we have our demate to parties other than medicare, renegade, social security and defense, mean that we spend on anything from defense to public safety less as a share of our economy then has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize our finances, but also spur more growth in the short term. i am open to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare for future generations. i have also said that we need more revenue through tax reform by closing loopholes and our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on healthcare and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investment in things like education that will help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire years debate over this. they made a clear decision about the approach. they do not think it is smart to have tax breaks for the wealthiest americans. they want us to get our books and order in a balanced way where everybody pulls the

in the way in two ways. if you're a company that does business with the defense department, if you're watching this sequestration madness. our the debt ceiling madness, are you going to be hiring new people? are you going to be expanding production? no, you're going to be wondering, is the defense department budget cut by 20%, 10%? so there is that -- >> you will hesitate to make certain business decisions, particularly hiring decisions? >> exactly. republicans often talk about how uncertainty makes businesses not expand production. well this is the biggest uncertainty is the craziness over the debt ceiling. and the second biggest is on the sequestration. there's that piece of it. but there's the broader piece that you and i have talked about. which is we need to do more than just have a cyclical upturn. what you were describing very elegantly. exactly right, is that there's a cyclical rise, return of the american economy. housing is up, energy production is up. but there's a broader issue, which is how do we get the kind of growth we used to have in this country. three, 4% growth.

"i think it was a good decision. if there was any problem with the batteries, that's pretty important. it was a good decision. i feel safer." the groundings follow a series of mishaps in the u.s. and japan that include repeated instances of lithium-ion bat
earnings. that is not good. it is a sign to be defensive and taking that with look what's happening in europe. europe industrial production came out today. negative 4%. the worst since 2009. they are already in a recession. with that economic backdrop, what do we do? we did an anti-growth package with taxes. we raised taxes. not just for the rich, for everybody. and i don't think that bodes well for continuing growth, and that's why we're defensive. cheryl: one of the things you talk about here and i want to kind of pick apart this point if you don't mind is you're saying we should be looking at going for high yield and global bonds. fair enough. but if you've got a u.s. economy which is still the biggest economy in the world, if you've got a weak economy, unfortunately, i know you are saying good economy, but some are saying we are going to have a weak economy in 2013, if that's the case, do i want to be high yield? does that make sense to you? >> yeah, it does because high yield you get paid a lot of different ways. high income, risk adjusted return. last year up over 15%. almost
% defense against the flu, this really raises your chances of not getting it. and if you do receive it, and you do actually get the flu, there's a good chance that the flu that you get, the symptoms are going to be much less. you'll be sick for fewer days and your fever will be -- your symptoms -- you'll feel much better. and it will not be anywhere near as severe as if you had not received the vaccine. >> right. so let me ask you, as somebody who has not gotten a flu shot because i have not yet. if i wait for new stocks to come in, are those vaccines better suited to the flu? do they then become more effective as the flu season goes on? >> no. the vaccine is the same vaccine that's being produced by the pharmaceutical companies. usually the world health organization will try to predict which strains are going to be the predominant strains. about a year in advance. and then it takes the pharmaceutical companies about -- probably about six months to produce the vaccine. once it's in production, it's not being modified until the subsequent flu season. >> the same vaccine you could have g
of the things we're keeping an eye on is some of the defense stocks. right under the shadow because of the possible quester. they are getting cheap and they have possible cash flows. >> glad you mentioned earnings. >> so far it's been somewhat mixed. i mean the banking sector is turning out some good numbers. >> yeah. >> where do you expect we might see the surprises on the upside in terms of the fourth quarter? >> in terms of sectors? >> yeah. financials have obviously done well, and that's somewhat cyclical. what i expect to do well are the consumer staples. they have been chugging along, but i think some of their expenses and costs were pretty moderate in the fourth quarter, and i think with the -- with the change in the taxes that came through in january, usually better for staples than consumer discretionaries so hopefully we'll get good numbers from there. >> where would you be investing, peter sorrentino? you said you like the early cyclicals? what does that mean? who do you like here? >> well, really it's a wide brush right now. we like refiners, the volero of the world. mar
aggressively strategically but playing a lot of defense in fixing cleaning up, moving on rebuilding and i just feel like this is a pivot point. and honestly the fourth quarter was good. it wasn't perfect, though. there's a lot still to go, but this is a pivot point where now we focus on running the business. >> so much of your business, speaking about smith barney, you are going to assume all of their brokers, right? something like 18,000 brokers the biggest brokerage firm in america. so much of your business has to do with the small investor. yet we know the small investor is not really in this market. they're out of it in a major way. how can you predict consistent earnings or this is a pivot point when you know the small investor isn't in it? >> that's a good question. the interesting thing is even with the small investor on the side lines the business is showing remarkable resilience. so with 0 interest rates, very little new equity being issued, and very little investor confidence, the market is showing great resilience. but again, our investors, we have small investors but we also have v
defensive in the markets's natural for people to think about two sectors, health care and staples. we really like health care more than staples right now. we see that pretty clearly. health-care companies are beating estimates more, they have higher cash balances and you know they are much cheaper. they really never have been cheaper on forward earnings relative to staples so we really like that overweight health quarter underweight staples call. as for industrials you have a lot of high quality u.s. companies. some have the china exposure. others benefit from energy and infrastructure or improvement in housing so it seemed like there were fundamental reasons to be more optimistic on that group of stocks. >> susie: okay. well, we'll see how it goes this year. thanks for coming on the program. we've been speaking with adam pozen. >> susie: it's not easy being a retailer these days, especially if you rely on customers buying at your store. many consumers come in and browse, but make their purchases online. but tech innovations are helping to change that. erika miller got a sneak peek at the in

spending as well as the defense department. each of them, they affect 8 to 10% reduction in expenditures. that's really painful to the gop but it's also very painful to the democrats, and i think that the threat of the sequester can get both parties to do what they need to do. that is, they need to sit in the room together and they need to hammer things out. instead of us lurching from one short-term solution to the next, hopefully they can do something that can last more than three or six months. it will be good for everyone. it will be especially good for the economy. >> good to see you, mr. tisch. thank you. >>> we're going to go to bert that coombs for a market flash. take it away. >> thanks, tyler. the teen retailer, bmo is out with a flash note saying it looks like the company is finally getting serious to turn things around. they want to focus on the expertise of some of the new management and also to try to capture that teenage mind not with key items, tyler, but the whole outfit. everybody likes to see the whole shebang. >> i like the outfits. >>> lance armstrong revealing all o
